ZUNI LEARNING TREE
A new kind of learning platform.
Designed by adminitrators, teachers, students, and families for administrators, teachers, students, and families.
Harnessing the power of free and open educational resources.
LEARNING BEGINS IN THE HOME
Because learning begins in the home it is vital that we provide parents with resources and tools they can use to find hands-on activities, literacy and learning activities, and ways to engage together. Their platform should go with them throughout their child’s PreK 12 experience. Their platform should provide the ways for them to collaborate with teachers and administrators, support classroom instruction and assignments, integrate with other district tools. ZUNI makes all of this possible from one place.
ONLINE LEARNING PLAYGROUND
Every child has a dream and a gift to share with the world. Having an online learning playground that allows kids to explore 24/7 opens the doors to new possibilities and academic growth. Students need a safe place to begin their self-directed learning and a way to connect with teachers on individual resources. ZUNI’s two-way communitation captures studdent voice on if/how a resource is impacting their learning. Each student is different and having a variety of resources increases the chances of meeting the diverse needs of students.
TEACHERS & ENGAGING TOOLS
With the right tools and resources, teachers can create magic in their classrooms. ZUNI Learning Tree not only offers an innovative online learning platform but also offers OneScreen interactive touch screen panels. Together classrooms take on a whole new life making it easy for teachers to “flip the classroom” and expand traditional teaching methods to include student-led, instruction. Teachers need these tools to do what they are asked to do.
Bringing things together to be more efficient and more effective!
How Can We Improve Teacher Decision-Making in the Use of Open Education Resources?
The greatest barrier to the effective use of Open Education Resources (OERs) is the time required to locate, identify, evaluate, and integrate them into existing instruction. Researchers have found that locating credible OERs was time consuming, and in some cases, impractical due to the confusing multitude of repositories and distribution channels.
